    This was my third time on this beautiful boat. For anyone choosing sunset cruises in Maui this is the one. I’d always rather pay a little more to have an uncrowded boat. This is a big catamaran that sails, and it only takes a small number of passengers so get a roomy private feel to the trip. I’ll do this one again and again. Thank you so much for everything! Your staff are always so friendly and helpful. My husband jokes that next time he’s going to sit on the nets upfront and not move an inch, letting everyone wait on him as he stares at the water. I might join him! Hahaha!

    What a beautiful boat you run! The last boat I was on was in Columbia. It was smaller speedy boat, but it was very fun and the snorkeling was good. This was more luxurious and peaceful. My lady preferred this one, as did I. If I ever make it big, I’m buying a sailing catamaran like yours and sailing around the Caribbean or Med. ahhh! That’s the life. Thanks again!

    I always feel like a rockstar when on this boat cause there are very few people on it. A big sailing catamaran for just me and my friends… and new friends. I love this boat and will go out on it every time I go to your island.

    Last time we did a sunset tour (4 years ago thanks to COVID), we booked through Snorkel Bob. the trip was not worth the money. Sunset was pretty spectacular but they put us on a small boat with a million people. This time we decided to spend a little more money for something better. And WOW, was it ever better! This was one hundred times better than the last trip. The sunset wasn’t even quite as impressive as the one from the previous trip, but it didn’t matter. the boat is luxurious, food delicious, staff warm and helpful, and the drinks bomb.

    I’m not great on boats. Thankfully it was a clear and calm evening. But I think it also had to do with being on a catamaran that made it easier on me. I’ve been on the single-hulled boats and it kills me. We saw a beautiful sunset casting an array of orange hues over the horizon and reflected off of the ocean. I felt so blessed to have had and agreed to this opportunity. If you’re looking for a unique way to experience Maui, this is it!

    The crew was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, providing us with detailed descriptions of the various regions and islands along our voyage.. They also made us tasty snacks and drinks throughout the tour. I was pleased with everything, especially the sunset!

    A heads up, when they say to come in the cabin for pupus, it’s not what you think.

    The boat left from the shore in Makena, and within minutes we were surrounded by magnificent views of the ocean and nearby islands. The sailboat was very spacious, with plenty of seating and standing room to take in the views. They don’t overcrowd the boat, which is much appreciated.
